Overview

It can be argued that Sinatra never sounded fully comfortable singing Christmas carols, and this record is no exception. While his other albums of the period are bursting with dash and sensitivity, this is a distant, even slightly lackadaisical performance. It's no dud on its own, but compared to the classic Christmas records of other artists, and especially to Sinatra's best work, it is unusually somber. Gordon Jenkins' adventurous arrangements are occasionally intrusive, but the album has touches of magic during "The Christmas Waltz" and "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear."

Frank Sinatra's voice is always magical but this Christmas CD has something for everyone. Jingle Bells is a hip/cool version that has become my favorite. I've owned this for years and will continue to love it.

There is nothing left to say about Sinatra. He's still the best. You don't want to miss this!

A blend of 'religious' and 'secular' Christmas songs done by the master. This is the album everyone should own if they only have one Christmas album(CD)!
